Norman Corwin: We Hold These Truths (Combined American Networks, 15 December 1941)
The classic Corwin broadcast, reputedly in the making when Corwin, working on the script while traveling by train, received the news of Pearl Harbour. The timing of the broadcast was impeccable then; the message of the broadcast remains relevant even today.

Robinson, Rudy Vallee, and Orson Welles, among others. Not to mention Leopold Stokowski leading the New York Philharmonic through "The Star Spangled Banner."
